Abstract We propose the concept of 'economy of consumption' as a way of examining the multiple effects of contemporary consumption. We present an interdisciplinary approach to the factors and social processes that have configured Puerto Rico as an economy of consumption. If one considers the specific ways in which modernization has affected the country, as well as the social transformations it has undergone in recent decades, one can take a contextual view of Puerto Rico as an economy of consumption. The transformations of capital and the inscription within consumption itself, as an order of signification, are the hermeneutic keys of this analysis.
